We recently had the opportunity to eat at Barrett's. The seafood was absolutely delicious. My husband enjoyed the seafood trio while I had the Waterman's Stew. I highly recommend both. I also recommend the fried green tomatoes with mozzarella. For dessert we truly enjoyed the warm peach and pecan bread pudding and the triple berry cobbler. Our waitress, Shelby, was... More

My family arrived at Williamsburg in the evening. We picked Beret's because it was the 1st restaurant we saw. However, it did not disappoint us at all. The meal was well worth the price. We sat outdoor on a mild summer evening and the atmosphere was perfect. I recommend to everyone to try Beret's on your next visit to Williamsburg.... More

For a place that specializes in seafood, the disappointment is not that the food is bad. It is average and overpriced...not much better than a Red Lobster.

Last Thursday, August 7th, my family and I went to Berret's for dinner and enjoyed the entire evening. We have had dinner here every time we have been in Williamsburg, and it has become one of our favorite restaurants there. This visit came about because we were taking a tour of the College of William & Mary with our son.... More

Colonial Williamsburg's hidden gem for great fish and chips. Visited the place due to other food joints busy and this place didn't disappoint. The service is outstanding. The food exemplary. The decor might lead you to believe it would be pricey, but it is not. Totally love the original art hanging all around. The fish and chips could have been... More

After a day at Busch Gardens we were treated to a wonderful meal. Our server Ashley was fabulous and the food was delicious. It was a really nice place. We are inside and enjoyed a quiet corner and were not rushed. It was a real pleasant evening! Give it a try!

The seafood was delicious and the presentation was outst6anding. Service was great as well. The food was a little on the pricey side, but was definitely worth it. After a long day flying from Houston, it was our treat for the evening! Would definitely recommend. By the way the portions were more than adequate!

We celebrated my mother's birthday with a tasty dinner @ Berret's. Expectations were high after reading other Trip Advisor reviews and Berret's did not disappoint. I will describe the she-crab soup in two words...yummy, yummy! The talapia and scallops in parchment paper was cooked to perfection. The cobbler dessert was nothing short of decadent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant... More

If you want an A one meal, this is the place to go. I had the July special, the sockeye salmon and it was supreme. The entrees are not small so the price fits the fair. The atmosphere al fresco was fab. Our server was knowledgable and entertaining! If you want fresh seafood prepared with passion and a personal touch,... More

Looked forward to this evening, but was a bit let down. Didn't have reservation time when I had wanted, so went earlier then planned. However the place was empty, looks like you could just walk in an sit, many tables empty and remainder that way thru-out. Waitress was GREAT, very attentive handled things like a PRO! The big mis-que was... More
